Why did you choose Hope College? I chose Hope because of the combination of their excellent academic opportunities, sports teams, and Christian foundation. 

What is your favorite pregame meal or snack? And why? My favorite pregame snacks are granola bars and bananas because they taste good and fuel me for my races. 

What is your favorite movie and why? My favorite movie is The Sound of Music because who doesn't love a good sing-along. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Not worry about things that are out of my control. Instead, handover all worries and anxieties to God because he is the one in control. 

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you. Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength"- Philippians 4:13 because it reminds me that nothing is impossible with God, all glory and credit goes to God. 

Please list any service opportunities you plan to be engaged with this year: Both on campus and off campus. (i.e. Mortar Board, CASA, Dance Marathon, Boys & Girls Club). I plan on doing service opportunities in the community with the cross country team and Dance Marathon.
